W Resources, the tungsten, copper and gold, exploration and development company announced they have completed a reverse circulation drilling campaign in Portugal at their Tarouca tungsten and tin exploration.
W Resources (LSE:WRES), the tungsten, copper and gold, exploration and development company announced they have completed a reverse circulation drilling campaign at its Tarouca tungsten and tin exploration property in Portugal. The month long drilling programme included 29 holes with 1,515 metres of total drilling, completed in lengths between 50 metres and 70 metres. Intersections are expected from surface to a maximum of a 50 metre depth, based on the very distinctive mineralization at surface. The full assay results are expected to be received in Q3 2018, following which the development team will model the mineralized lenses in order to advance a geological resource at Tarouca.
As quoted in the press release:
“The RC drilling programme was completed in order to confirm the target exploration area, as well as provide a more in-depth understanding on several high-grade skarn lenses with a complex geological history (discontinuous mineralized bodies).Tarouca is located just 20km from Régua and we believe it has the potential to enhance and expand the Régua development,” said Michael Masterman, chairman of W Resources.
The previous 2014 Tarouca diamond core drilling programme intersected high grade mineralization, including (announced with JORC (2012) Table1 on 28 July 2014 and 17 September 2014):
- Hole TAD007 – 3.09 metres at 0.43% Tungsten Trioxide (“WO3”) from 8.18 metres
- Hole TAD020 – 1.39 metres at 2.44% WO3 from 41.28 metres
- Hole TAD020 – 1.17 meters at 0.58% WO3 from 54.95 metres
- Hole TAD020 – 1.44 metres at 0.38% WO3 from 118.89 metres
- Hole TAD021 – 3.29 metres at 1.13% WO3 from 54.55 metres
